Room 1 blew bubbles and talked about who was in our bubbles during level 4 lockdown.  We wrote about what we enjoyed in our bubbles and what we missed.  Lots of us loved watching movies and missed playing with our friends.

Wonderful Writing

Room 1 were given the challenge of writing a story about the following picture.  They were asked to think about the following:
-What are the dog and owner’s names?
-Where are they going?
-Why did they tie balloons to the dog?  
-How does the dog move? Does he kick in the air to move or does the lady pull him?  Maybe he blows off!

Listen to a few of our stories below.

Lexia Legends

It's great to see so many of you spending a little bit of time on Lexia during our lockdown.  Keep it up Room 1.


Here are a few ways Room 1 celebrated ANZAC Day.  Mrs Meikle made biscuits, Isla made a fabric wreath, and Aubree and her sister Bella made recycled poppies for outside.

A Beautiful Butterfly!

Hi Room One,
Look who has emerged from their chrysalis and was waiting for friend to help them get outside.
I've left the butterfly out in the garden by the playground, so no need to worry about it being stuck inside.

Counting in 2's

One of our math groups is practising to skip count in 2's.  We used shoes to help us.  On the pieces of paper we wrote the numbers to help us.  Can you skip count in 2's?

Spelling Practice

We wrote our spelling words out on the concrete in chalk.  Then we bounced a ball and called out the letters to spell them.  Some of us can now spell the words without looking!
